Description
This fifth novel from law professor and Bloomberg View columnist Stephen Carter, following The Emperor of Ocean Park, is a daring re-imagining of a tumultuous historical moment, in which Abraham Lincoln survived Booth's assassination attempt at Ford's Theater. Two years later he faces impeachment for overstepping his constitutional authority both during and after the Civil War. Abigail Canner is a young black woman with a degree from Oberlin, working for the law firm that has undertaken Lincoln's defense—until the murder of Lincoln's lead counsel plunges her into a web of intrigue and conspiracy.

"This novel has all the juicy stew of post–Civil War Washington, with the complexities of race, class, and sex mixed in. Carter draws on historical documents and a vivid imagination to render a fascinating mix of murder mystery, political thriller, and courtroom drama."—Booklist (starred review)
